Will LBYSO have a spring rec league?

Yes.  CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP.

 

When are spring sign ups?

Registration is open now through March 26.  There may be late additions to fill open spots after that date.

 

When does the season start?  How many weeks?

Teams should begin forming in late March allowing for 2-3 weeks of practices.  Expectations are for at least 8 games  starting April 17 and ending June 12.  Then normal 10 game seasons return in fall.

 

Are there special protocols and protections planned?

Yes.  Info will be announced during the coming days.  The season must accommodate the ongoing COVID situation.  We ask for full cooperation from all participants, family and spectators.

 

Will there be a Skills Nights program for spring?

This is being explored.  But given that we now intend to have at least a partial season, we will determine if some skills clinics can still be held.

 

What is the plan for fall?

We expect to have a normal fall calendar.

 

When can we register for fall?

Assuming their is no reimposition of COVID restrictions, fall registration should begin in mid-March and run through June.
